When heart and mind pull in opposite directions, which way do you turn?
Despite her impoverished background, Louisa knows she will marry well. Her parents have told her so her entire life. So a young accountant advertising for a mail order bride seems perfect.
But when Louisa arrives in the small California town of Green Hill Creek, she discovers that Jesse Johnson has been keeping a secret that could ruin all her plans. Even worse, the more time she spends with him, the less those plans seem to matter.
For the first time in her life, Louisa finds herself doubting everything she's been raised to believe, and finds her heart waking to new possibilities.
